Former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs' NFL career ended in 2021 after a deadly crash in Las Vegas. The crash killed a young woman by the name of Tina Tintor.
Tony Rodriguez, a witness and one of the first people to arrive at the scene, has provided new details surrounding the crash scene.
According to Rodriguez, Ruggs was "dangling" out of his Corvette and he thought the wide receiver was dead.
From TMZ Sports:
Rodriguez said Ruggs' lower body was still in the ride, but his torso was "dangling" outside of it. He said he was going to tell Ruggs' girlfriend, who was a passenger in the Corvette, to leave him be, but said she had already begun pulling the wide receiver out.
"She grabbed him and pulled him fully out," Rodriguez said. "I have no idea who he is. I don't care about football. Never heard of Henry Ruggs. But, I didn't see no life in his body."
"I thought he was dead."
It sounds like Ruggs came close to not only taking a life, but losing his own.
